If you love journaling...
and planners, and self-development, and #studyspo, and periods of time for self-reflection and taking stock of your life, then this is for you.
We’re coming up on the two-week anniversary of quitting my job. (It just happened!)
I was at that job for over two years, and I wasn’t happy. I felt like the proverbial dog sitting on a nail, and I didn’t move but I kept howling until someone showed me a way out. And I took it.
When I quit, I decided to take the whole month of December off, to rest and recharge and write and reflect.
On where I am, now.
On where I want to be.
On what I’m doing to get there.
A couple of years ago, I wrote this nifty little ebook that I called Journaling Your Goals.
It’s loosely structured into a four-week program:
Week One: Here and Now
- evaluate the current balance of your life
- realize your values
- start implementing small changes to make you more productive
- learn how to track your productivity
Week Two: Reflect:
- look carefully at what you’ve accomplished
- how your current behavior could bring you joy…or regret
- how to overcome paralyzing doubt
- how to combat fear
- how to become a better you
Week Three: Act On It:
- associate hard work with good things
- visualize your goals
- automate your routines
- use various techniques to “hack” your brain to respond positively to your efforts at productivity
Week Four: Moving Forward:
- create your own manifesto
- start a spiritual routine
- celebrate your achievements
- support yourself with self-care and healing techniques
JYG also includes sections on:
- how to set a self-directed challenge
- how to get obsessed
- how to make a Memory Jar
- New Year’s Resolutions
It’s about 30,000 words of handy tricks, life hacks, and inspiration, based on my own experiences as a lifelong addict of organizational tools and journals, for $3.
I’ll be using it this month to realign myself with my values and get back on my feet for the New Year.
So if you feel inspired to do the same, especially considering the fact that I am facing a month with no income and every little bit helps, I would appreciate your support by buying a thing that I created (all by myself! out of thin air, it seems!).
Thanks, lovelies. You’re the best.
And if you do start going through the program, please tag me or drop me a line and let me know how it works out for you!
